How can museums move beyond simply raising awareness and establish a dialogue both within and across communities and cultural boundaries? By examining the ways in which museums can involve refugees and asylum seekers this volume explores this key question. Leading artists, curators, and academics come together to outline different levels of participation by audiences and communities and explore a range of topics from video games to role-play and theatre; and from photography to participatory video and digital storytelling. Case studies are used throughout to highlight the various ways that different participatory approaches can be used successfully.

Hanne-Lovise Skartveit is a researcher and filmmaker with particular interest in documentary forms across media, including games and new media.

Katherine Goodnow is Professor at the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen, Norway.
